Max Verstappen is favored in the Austrian Grand Prix odds.

2023 Austrian Grand Prix Odds: Verstappen At Red Bull Ring

Stop me if you've heard this before but Max Verstappen won an F1 race! The Red Bull driver, and heavy favorite to win the 2023 F1 Championship, won the Canadian GP over the weekend with a final time of 1:33:58. Nearly 10 seconds over Aston Martin's Fernando Alonso.

The win in Montreal was Verstappen's 41st win and Red Bull's 100th in the F1. 

Verstappen, who's nearly 70 points clear at the top of the points standings, is favored to win this weekend's Austrian GP at a commanding -300.

Why Is Max Verstappen Favored To Win Austrian GP?

The Austrian Grand Prix is Red Bull’s home race. They've won it three times (2018, 2019, 2021) in the past five events. Verstappen has been behind the wheel for all three of those wins.

At -300, oddsmakers give the Dutch driver a 75% implied odds of winning here for a fourth time. No driver has won it more than three times.

Can Verstappen make history?

Yeah, there's no doubt he can. He's won the last four races in a row and finished with the fastest lap in two of them. In the two races on the season that he hasn't won, Verstappen was second.

So not only is this his team's home track and one that he's won recently, but he's in incredible form and looks unstoppable. 

He's no doubt going to win this.

Austrian Grand Prix Value Picks

There isn't much value in betting on Verstappen. At -300 you'll get $3 on a winning $10 bet. What are some more valuable options out there?

Charles Leclerc +2200

Leclerc is the defending Austrian GP champion having taken the circuit last season besting Verstappen by 1.5 seconds. It was a tense back-and-forth between the two rival drivers with Leclerc getting the edge thanks to his DRS assistance. 

The Ferrari driver isn't having nearly as strong of a season as he had in 2022, but he's got the technical acumen to win this race yet again. 

That's what we're looking for in a value pick. A driver who's got the technical ability and who's car can handle this tough track.

Carlos Sainz +4000

If not for a power unit failure in 2022, we might be talking about Sainz being the defending Austrian GP champ. 

Sainz was within a second of Verstappen and about to use that DRS assistance, but because of a faulty power unit, the Ferrari driver wasn't able to overtake Verstappen and ended up having to retire with 20% of the race left. 

I like the value here for a driver who's got the same car as the defending champ and was challenging for the checkered flag just a year ago.

You might have noticed a time jump from 2003 to 2014. That's not a typo, the Austrian GP was not held from 2004 to 2013 with the track falling into disrepair. 

But with Red Bull's investment, the race came back where the track owner has enjoyed a lot of recent success.
